Using One Company for Water Damage and Repairs in Middletown Makes Good Sense 

Water damage is one of the costliest events that can happen to a home. As little as one inch of water can result in a considerable loss for a home in terms of structural elements and contents.  

Middletown properties with water damage frequently need more attention than water extraction and drying. Water has the propensity to migrate and wick into sheetrock, behind baseboards, and under the flooring, resulting in the need for large-scale restoration efforts.  


Water loss in a home cannot get diagnosed visually. The visible water may only be a portion of the removal needs. Once free from the pipes, water migrates rapidly, and the techs rely on specialized equipment to scope the property to determine the actual scale of the cleanup needs.  

Not Everything Can Get Restored

Once water enters the core of the sheetrock, it is often beyond restorable. The techs measure above the visible waterline by several inches and cut away the moisture-laden building materials, halting any further loss to walls or ceilings.  

Flooring is another area that gets profoundly affected, particularly tile and glue-down flooring. Once it has prolonged exposure to moisture, it can delaminate. SERVPRO techs always attempt to clean and restore tiles for reuse to save homeowners the cost of replacement, but whether or not it is possible depends on the construction materials.   

Controlled Demo is a Part of Water Loss Cleanup

The removal of sheetrock, delaminated flooring, and baseboards are typical parts of the restoration process. The damaged building materials get removed, and the property gets prepped for drying and final cleaning before repairs happen.  

Finding and vetting a contractor takes time. It makes good sense to reopen to clients as fast as possible to let the techs that did the cleanup and restoration services also complete the needed repairs. With their general contractor licenses #HIC.0652559, they can reinstall flooring, repair the sheetrock and do any finishing touches such as painting to bring the home to its pre-water loss condition.  

SERVPRO of Middletown / New Britain at (860) 826-5169 handles any size water damage and reconstruction needs for local properties, making it, "Like it never even happened."
